Study Abroad in China

More and more students each year go to Mainland China and Taiwan to study the Chinese language for the duration of one semester or a year, after they complete a year or two of Chinese language classes at SDSU or equivalent. International Business students are required to spend at least a semester in China.

Exchange students pay tuition for SDSU and are waived tuition in the Chinese universities. They are however, expected to pay for their own living expenses, which are typically lower than in California. All exchange students will also pay for their own transportation.

As Xiamen University has become our partner university for the newly established Confucius Institute, it is likely that it is going to have an exchange program with SDSU as well.

Please contact Professor Mei Zhong of Communication (mzhong@mail.sdsu.edu) or Professor Zheng-sheng Zhang in the Department of Linguistics and Asian/Middle-Eastern Languages (594-1912 or zzhang@mail.sdsu.edu) for more information. International Business students should first inquire at the office of International Business.
